This paper presents an effective method for summarizing content of the video with plot preserved. The proposed method provides static video summary and consists of three major procedures (1) extracting keyframes regarding temporal information, (2) estimating Region of Interest (ROI) from the extracted frames, and (3) assembling the ROI into one image by arranging them according to the temporal order and their size, while they blend each other smoothly. In each process, we make the method concise for computational complexity. Experiment on various types of video (e.g. movie, animation, home video) demonstrates that the proposed method generates expressive video summarization and conserves the plot information. The main contribution relies on reflecting temporal information in video summarization.
